Abstract

The human population has been growing rapidly in recent years. One of the most basic needs of people is food. Many countries around the world invest in the food industry. Climate change, population growth, urbanization, natural disasters, and agricultural efficiency are important factors affecting food production. Companies must constantly control their production, marketing, and supply chain process depending on the rapidly changing competitive conditions. Supply chain management is an important process for companies to be successful and ensure their continuity in the food industry, as in many industries.
